Co. Kildare is well known for its horse racing, cultural attractions and shopping. What is also great about the county is the close proximity to the Capital, Dublin. This is a huge appeal to commuters as there is not only a shortage of housing in Dublin but the cost of houses and living in Dublin has hit an all-time high making it difficult for people to buy or settle there. Kildare is a great alternative to Dublin as it is right on the commuter belt.
Kildare provides a good mix as two of the most important factors for people relocating to be close to their job in Dublin are “Transport networks and amenities.” Kildare allows for access to main roads such as the N7 and M7 which run through the county. You can also easily drive from Kildare to other cities like Cork, Limerick and Galway.
